next came the wheels , mini-z ones are way to small looking so onto the lathe and a bit of custom work

Man, you beat me to it! My body is still enroute to me.

Great custom work though. It'll make my life easier when I try to do one.

What is the final wheelbase of this? 110mm?

With an RM T-Plate extended the way it is i think that does make 110mm.

Very cool...what offsets does the width need? I have some +1 alloys thatd look uber sharp but they are Enzo offsets...

thanks guys :)
the car is indeed a mondo motors rc car , they are lisenced by paggani so the pearl yellow is a good match to there car , details are ok maybe do with a little more imo

sizes are
front track aprox 78mm
rear track aprox 86mm
wheel base aprox 115mm
so if using mini-z wheels thats +3 front and rear and an LM diff

but for me the mini-z wheels look lost in the wheel wells thats why i canverted the original model ones
